I was checking google.com/profiles and Matt Cutts's profile was one of the featured profiles on that page, when I clicked it I got an error that this profile wasn't found.

It seems that Matt Cutts didn't like Buzz, and he disabled it and his google profile got deleted along with it.

Also, I haven't seen any posts in his blog about Buzz.

He probably disabled his friendly url,

google.com/profiles/1094122572 ...
google.com/profiles/1151642021 ...

Ah! When I searched the profiles I wrote Cutts with one t so I couldn't find him and that was my guess.

Matt's two accounts are still live:
google.com/profiles/1094122572 ... (perso)
google.com/profiles/1151642021 ... (pro)

He probably changed his profile URL to avoid spam as it can only be customized by using the Google email username.

(I don't like the fact you can't choose anything but your gmail nickname)

YES! Good point Zim, I hate that too and that's the reason that I don't have a friendly URL for my profile. Otherwise it's to ugly and not logical.

Dropped an email to Google about this. No plans at the moment to make custom url's available. The suggestion was forwarded to the team.

I don't see why you can't pick Picasa Web's custom username.

I bet you could see who Matt emailed most with, maybe someone from Bing ;-)
